• Miss Mary Mack Introduces Her Wings

    Tyree Daye

    Fall 2019

    My name      is      Miss Mary      Mack      Mack      Mack

         you sing it      my name

    I turned into a bluebird last summer, I flew

    through all the south. My wings are blue
    and I touch the sky.

    At first, I decided I was never coming back.

    I took off my black
                                  housedress. I knew freedom

    was not the act of flying
